Time again to respond to the Weekly Photo Challenge:
These clocks I’ve carefully restored
As heirlooms that they are,
And, in my study, they record
How they can make go far
Each minute of the passing time –
The larger gives a lovely chime –
Their time has travelled well.
For travel clock has journeyed much,
To places quite far-flung,
The other of a nature such
That it has hours rung
In many places all around;
For half, it gives a single sound,
Its faithful time to tell.
In many homes across the years
Tick-tocking, at one wind,
In times of joy and times of tears,
For seven days, you find;
They have become as good old friends
And though the time of such clocks ends
These we would never sell.
